Nancy Pelosi says she’s willing to slash House coronavirus bill proposal in half

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) quietly revealed on Tuesday that she’s willing to compromise on the hotly-debated coronavirus relief bill in order to come to an agreement with GOP leaders. 

After months of stalling in an attempt to shoehorn in a slew of Democrat pet projects into the bill, Pelosi said in an interview with Politico that she’s “willing to cut our bill in half to meet the needs right now.”

“We have to try to come to that agreement now,” Pelosi said. “We’re willing to cut our bill in half to meet the needs right now. We’ll take it up again in January. We’ll see them again in January. But for now, we can cut the bill in half.”

Pelosi did not elaborate on which figure she’s willing to cut in half. Pelosi’s HEROES Act, passed in May, proposed a $3.4 trillion spending package which was immediately struck down by the GOP-led Senate.

After weeks of negotiations, Democrats offered to reduce the bill by $1 trillion to $2.4 trillion in total. Republicans again rejected the proposal. It is unclear if this is the figure Pelosi is willing to cut by half in order to sign a deal.

The House left D.C. last week for a recess which would push further progress on the bill into September — though Pelosi has scheduled an “urgent hearing” on August 24th to grill Postmaster General Louis DeJoy about changes to the US Postal Service that Democrats believe are part of a plot to steal the election.

Donald Trump’s recently issued set of executive orders implementing emergency economic relief measures undercut Pelosi’s leverage over the relief package negotiations, and her continued stonewalling over the package is not popular with American voters.

It appears that Pelosi may be rethinking her formerly steadfast position — though only time will tell if she’ll put her money where her mouth is.

    1. they just re-voted her back in less than a year ago….not sure how long that is till that vote is taken again? Tomorrow would be good! What a breath of fresh air that would be!

      1. All The House of Representatives are just 2 year terms. But when your representative brings home lots of PORK (lots of tax payers money)normally they are re-elected everytime they run!

        1. Hence the need for term limits. Please join Convention of States. It is a nation-wide movement and non-partisan group that is calling for term limits, reining in of big government, and a balanced budget using US Constitution Article 5. It is legal and it is the final check and balance our founding fathers gave to ‘We the People’ for express purpose of curtailing out of control federal government.

          1. I WILL BE 93 THIS NOV. AND VERY CONCERNED THE WAY THINGS ARE GOING, PLEASE TELL ME IF ANY PROGRESS HAS BEEN MADE REGARDING TERM LIMITS. THIS IS A MUST. WHAT CAN BE DONE TO GET MOVING ON THIS SITUATION INSTEAD OF JUST TALKING ABOUT IT ????

          2. Term limits for all of them. There are those who have beeen in Congress for 45 years, like Biden, Pee- lose-it, Schumer, Susan Collins, Diane Feinstein, Al sharpton, and so many others. OUT OUT they must go! PERIOD! Enough POCKETING the taxppayers money for their own benefit.

      The bold face narrative of lies by all the cronies is hateful and misleading!! Speak out and make them eat crow at Ballot Box! F.Papion

  2. Put her money where her mouth is? You are kidding right! It isn’t her money. The money is ours. The TAX PAYER. She needs removed from office asap. Her hate, her disregard for the Constituion and the AMERICAN people is awful.

  3. Dennis, I agree Time for the radical let to take a hike. If when the House and the Senate, I pray first thing they do is vote in Term Limits. SCOTUS needs some age limit as well.

  4. PINCHA Pelosi is just an angry old washed up radical hag !!! She needs to take a walk onto the Golden Gate bridge , think about how much she hates everything and everybody and take a deep breath ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, .

  5. Nancy Goebles, is trying to once again shine in the eye’s of her sheep. I say NO stimulus agreement with any Democrat pork. Help the people you Nazi Bxxtch..

  6. The Democratic Party lost in 2016, and every action it has taken since then has been nothing more than sour grapes. The American People know what a vendetta is, and to date every move made against Trump by the Democrats has had all the earmarks of a simple vendetta. Their only agenda is to keep Trump from being re-elected in 2020, and that is no way to convince people you can actually run the country any better.

    It seems to me that the Democrats simply want to take their ball and go home rather than play. The problem is that they don’t have the ball.

  7. And people (Democrats) still vote for her!! People in California have to be smarter than that, that’s one election spot that has to be cheating, know one in there right mind could vote for her! The Republicans keep her on the payroll, why?? They have enough that’s against the law crap for her to be off the payroll and in jail!! Ripping up documents ring a Bell???

    1. I resent your remark about California Republicans want her again! I’m an embarrassed Democrat AND I did not vote for ANY DemoRat. I have NO INTENTION OF VOTING FOR A DEMORAT in November. My VOTE is RED ALL THE WAY!!!!!

  8. Concentrate on the virus and help the people in need. You call this a Heroes Act? Before one cent goes to cannabis Demand to see the data that proves it’s even considered as a cure or therapeutic for Covid. If the data is valid we can all buy our own. So bag that idea What’s blithering idiot

  9. If we all, or mostly all, stop paying taxes, at least the ones we have control of, they would not have the money to spend!

  10. TRUMP WORKS FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE BECAUSE HE LOVES AMERICA, AND NANCY WORKS FOR EVIL BECAUSE SHE HATES THE AMERICAN PEOPLE!

  11. She loves herself more than anyone. She is a human piece of garbage and should be thrown out with the trash . Then chuck boy should go next.

  12. No deals with the devil Democratics they lie cheat and steal from good American people. Kick them to the curb they had plenty of time to help the American people they choose not to. They have done everything to destroy the American people. It’s time to rise up and destroy the Democratic Party

  13. Think Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Summa ,pencil neck and Jerry Nadler should all be charged with lying to Congress and sent directly to jail inMexico.

    Joe O

  14. All President Trump needs to do is EXECUTIVE ORDER the STIMULUS, and forget these radical witches. And then vote them out when the time comes. Don’t stress out. Same oh political game anyway

  15. All this proves is that liberals are holding Amercian hostage over all the pork in their bill. We have to vote these people out of office or get ready for the United States to turn into Portland. TRUMP 2020

  16. Piglosi has NO intention to cut any of her “ pet project funding”, it will be cuts to necessary items we all need. She will have items hidden in the bill that SHE wants. Any bill should be read in it’s entirety on the house floor and broadcasted to the American people live. Any thing that does not directly benefit the American people should be deleted. It is “ supposed to be a stimulus bill “ to help American people, Not the cannabis industry, planned parenthood, or other non-related items!
